Polka Party - 1961

Polka Party record label

Dick Sinclair was one of our first jocks. He was in that first class at Fox Film studios in 1943, went to the Mosquito Network. When he got back he made polka music incredibly popular, a syndicated radio show, several TV shows. He loved his work. By the 1950s Polka Party was on AFRTS and continued through the late 1960s.

The charitable trust has been giving a voice to those involved in radio via our website since 2004 and will continue to do so.

We are inclusive of all visitors, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or disability and aim to connect people of all ages and cultures who love radio

We welcome a sense of wonder from the joy of listening via radio, and from memories retold for the enjoyment of all generations.

We prefer to use environmentally sustainable goods and services where we can afford to, and we provide free community access worldwide to our collections, published research, preservation and promotion activities in a completely paper-free environment.
